About: Black Cumin’s secret? Aromatic constituents and antioxidants (including thymoquinone) which promote the skin’s natural defenses and calm irritation. On its own or as a therapeutic skin care ingredient, Black Cumin oil supports strong hair and nails, nourishes depleted skin and acts as a barrier to seal in moisture. It may also relieve occasional redness and itching due to dryness.
